The weekend was busy but very very fun. The place was amazing - Twelve Atlantic Station. It's the third hotel we've stayed in because of an Imedex function that didn't feel at all like a hotel. Friday night started with the party mentioned below, and as you can tell, it went on for a while. The dj at the main party was fantastic, so I was on the dance floor most of the time. When we weren't dancing, we were either eating, drinking, or Dave was busy winning enough in gift cards for us to buy a 40" Toshiba LCD TV on Saturday morning.
The afterparty - where I continued drinking, having moved on to champagne - lasted until about 3:30am.
We woke up about 9am, and I was surprisingly not very hungover. I didn't feel great, but the only real issue was a splitting headache that went away after about four Advil. However I was completely exhausted, so the rollerskating plans that Stacy and I had didn't actually happen. I took a nap, and then Dave and I went to dinner and a movie with his sister and brother-in-law.
Longhorn, as usual, was great. The Day the Earth Stood Still, on the other hand, even in IMAX, was just ok.
I know I promised some pictures of the new do, so they are below - along with some other pictures from our trip to Florida a couple of weeks ago.
Packing to leave for the party. The hair's a mess, but well, that's what I like about it. It doesn't really matter when it's a mess. As a matter of fact, that's kind of the point.

I don't know what I was thinking with all that make-up. All I can say is that I was in a hurry to get to the party ...
Surprisingly early in the evening.
Not surprisingly, this is later on in the evening.
This is me slightly hungover, so the hair isn't exactly as it should look, but you probably get the idea. And this is definitely the picture that shows the new color the best.

This one's for you, Stacy
